Not a sentence headline we would normally use, but it would appear the Labour leader is frit. Ever since Neo-Guido asked Ed at a press conference whether he preferred the NHS or football, operational press releases and invitations to speeches immediately dried up.

Quote of the Day

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
